Working Ourselves Out of a Job – A Passion for Improvement

Gravity Form first image

This eBook was winner of the EuroSTAR ‘Best Paper’ award 2010. It asks what is the purpose of a tester? Are we really needed? Should we be needed? If everything went well, if no-one made mistakes, if nothing needed improving, then testing and testers would not be needed. We only need testers because people make mistakes. What if we concentrated on preventing the mistakes instead of finding them after they have been made?
